Thanks for commenting. It's really cool to have the developers address questions.paulkaplan wrote:Easel developer here, just wanted to clarify a couple things:
Awesome. I'm looking forward to it.paulkaplan wrote:This is correct, we don't currently have support for metric. It is first on our priority list though!
That's really helpful. That was the major feature that was missing for me.paulkaplan wrote:You can set them manually! Just click on the value listed (feed in inches / min, depth per pass in inches) and it will allow you to edit the values.
That's really cool. The only other piece of software I use for SVGs is FreeCAD (it can import everything, and support SVG exports), which exports at 1px/mm (per: http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.ph ... =Draft_SVG).paulkaplan wrote:Actually the SVG importer automatically detects the headers created by Inkscape and Illustrator, and scales the DPI accordingly. If you use another piece of software that uses its own DPI, please let us know and we can add automatic detection for that.
That's not a huge improvement for me because I have a desktop computer inside, and a crappy laptop in my garage. I CAM on my desktop, then copy my files over wireless to the laptop in the garage to be sent. Now that you mention it, is it possible to export G-code as a file from Easel? I can't find that option anywhere.paulkaplan wrote:Try it! It really is what puts apart Easel from MakerCAM. The shapeoko is automatically detected and you are able to send gcode to your machine through the browser.
EDIT: I just refreshed the page, and didn't lose all my work. That's a huge improvement.
